1) Objective

IDRC and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) are pleased to invite proposals for applied research projects that generate and mobilize evidence in support of contextualizing and scaling the impact of promising or proven innovative approaches to strengthen teacher professional development, agency, and well-being, in GPE partner countries.

While the broader domain of teacher professional development, agency, and well-being encompasses numerous significant aspects, this request for proposals focuses on two issues that can make a difference in teaching and learning. The challenges are:

  • Improving the quality and scope of teacher education and development.
  • Supporting teacher agency and well-being.

GPE and Innovation Exchange (KIX) aims to respond to these challenges by doing the following:

  • Generating evidence about how to scale the impact of innovative approaches that address the challenges of teacher professional development, agency, and well-being.
  • Strengthening the capacities of relevant stakeholders to use that knowledge and innovation.
  • Mobilizing the evidence developed to improve policy and practice in education systems.

2) Eligibility

This funding opportunity is open to either individual organizations or consortia of up to three organizations working in Global Partnership for Education partner countries. Specific eligibility requirements, including funding and duration, vary across the three types of grants available (single country, multi-country and regional/global).

3) Location

Proposals must target, and be grounded in, GPE partner countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Pacific.

4) Budget

Single country grants range up to CAD500,000, Multi-country grants of up to CAD1,250,000, Regional/global grants of up to CAD2,000,000.

5) Application

All applications should be submitted in English or French, using the online application form link. Eligible proposals must be submitted no later than Monday, January 15, 2024 – 23:59.
